Nov 22 - Kanye West Admits Plotting Publicity Stunt With 50 Cent
 

 
Kanye West has finally admitted that his chart battle with 50 Cent back in September was mere publicity stunt. West came up with the idea, 50 nodded his head and the latter added a little spice.

50 first came with a shocking statement that he will retire if his album 'Curtis' was to lost from West's 'Graduation'. Upon both albums release on September 11, West's beat his by more than 250,000 copies. West has just revealed that there was no personal beef, it was all made up to boost the sale.

"It was a complete publicity stunt. It was my idea," West blurted out to GQ. "I knew it was going to take off as soon as we were going to come out on the same date. Think about it - you got the two biggest s**t-talkers in rap history. There's no-one in rap history for talking more s**t than me and 50. That's something I will stand on."

When asked about 50's vow to retire, West added, "Oh man, he sold so many more records by saying that. Man, 50 is really one of my favorite rappers, too. I almost feel bad (about beating him)."

West is among the honorees of GQ's Man of the Year, with others being former U.S. president Bill Clinton and actor Daniel Craig. "What can we say about Kanye West? With his album Graduation, he called a home run shot and he delivered," Jason Gay, GQ articles editor said.

They never made it seem like a beef or anything; just a friendly competition. I knew i wasn't buying either of them, so that sh*t never really effected me until 50 said he would retire. Then i was really hoping Ye would destroy his numbers.

yea...everybody knew this


but u see kanye like "I THOUGHT OF THIS"..."I CAME UP WIT THE IDEA"...tryin to seem like the smartest person in the world... i fu*k wit his swag at times cuz i respect the way he came up...but the way he be bi*chin about awards & sh*t, screamin how he the best(LMMFAO), going out of his way to make sh*t clear that he came up wit this idea


the difference between 50 & kanye is...kanye really has talent...but 50 knows people...i dont believe kanye came up wit this idea...prolly some pr intern or somethin...if the word was that 50's camp came up wit the idea, i'd actually believe it was 50 plan


at kanye havin this plan & already havin his bombs ready to drop on 106 & park(he knew he would k!ll 50 when jay came out)


but hey whatever

im really most mad about 50 not stickin to his word & retiring
